At Saddleback, we feel that it’s OUR responsibility to “clear
the way” for you to come to church.
We want you to be able to experience the
great music, encouraging messages, friendly
people and enjoyable atmosphere that are
a part of Saddleback. And we know that your
first time at a church, any church, brings
up some questions. How
do I get there... what
should I wear... what's
available for my kids... what
should I expect in church? Here is a
quick look at what you can expect, based
on what people see when they visit Saddleback.
“It’s a big church, but everyone was more friendly than I thought they’d be.”
Here at Saddleback, we’ll make sure the first face you see when you approach
the church has a smile on it. Whether
you need childcare or are looking for
a place for your teens, a greeter will
be nearby to help you get where you
need to go.
“The message helped me with what I was facing that week.”
You'll enjoy upbeat music and practical messages that help you deal with real life issues.
We’ll even give you a helpful outline with the Bible passages. What you learn on the weekend,
you’ll be able to use during the week. Whether you join us in the main worship center
or in one of our several worship venues, we want to help you connect with the
personal hope and practical help that God can give us.
“I can wear what’s comfortable!”
We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear.
So, dress casually and you’ll fit right in. After all, we have a pastor
who wears Hawaiian shirts… and no socks!
“I loved the programs for my kids!”
We know that as a parent you need be sure that your children are in a SAFE learning
environment. And we know that your children are looking for a FUN place to learn.
We’ve invested a lot to make sure that both of these goals are reached.
You’ll see that in the buildings the children and students meet in, and
even more in the volunteers who work with your kids. To go to a personal
message from our pastors who work with your kids click on the following words:
Children, Jr. High or Sr. High.
“They asked me NOT to participate in the offering.”
The offering is for those who are part of the Saddleback
family. Instead of wanting you to give something, we want you to get something!
If it’s been a long time since you’ve been
to church, Saddleback has you in mind! There’s
already enough you have to think about when
you’re visiting a church for the first
time. We hope that getting some of this
“stuff” out of the way not only
encourages you to join us for church, but
also helps you to connect with the hope
and encouragement that God has for you.
